WOE: Atkins maintenance with yogurt and fruit
I wanted to start by saying the best frozen boneless, skinless chicken breasts by far are the Tyson ones (6.5 lbs) I've found at Sam's (about $12.00). They're 99% fat free (I hate pulling fat off skinless breasts.)

The two recipes I make the most are also the easiest:

1) Blue Cheese Chicken: Take boneless, skinless chicken breasts (fresh or frozen) and top with prepared blue cheese or feta cheese dressing. Squeeze some fresh lemon on top and top with fresh pepper. Bake for 25 - 35 minutes (longer if frozen) at 375 degrees. You can also top with crumbled feta or any other shredded cheese during the last fifteen minutes of baking. You can also add veggies (onions, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, mushrooms, etc.) The dressing makes the best sauce!

2) Chinese Mushroom Chicken: Lightly dip boneless, skinless chicken breasts (again, fresh or frozen) in almond flour or cornstarch (you can also put them first in an egg wash if you like). Saute quickly on both sides until brown in oil. (A mixture of peanut and sesame oil is terrific, but any kind will work. You can also use butter.) Add any kind of mushrooms (I use straw, but sliced white ones work well too) and continue cooking for a few minutes. Pour in about 1/2 cup soy sauce, the juice of one lemon, ginger, and a little white wine. Cook for ten minutes on low heat. Yummy!

slice a skinless boneless breast into about 4 or 5 pieces. Marinate over night in Franks(or other hot sauce) pan saute.. Coat cooked chicken with additional franks if desired.

Yummy, spicy.. just like buffalo wings WITHOUT all the fat

LC Smokey Mountain Chicken

Smokey Mt Chicken

Boneless Skinless Chic Breasts
Low Carb BQ Sauce (I use Carb Options)
Cheddar Cheese (or mozzeralla)
Bacon (fried)
Ham

I grill my chicken on the grill till done, then I top it with low carb BQ sauce, a slice of ham, couple slices of bacon (fried up), then top with cheddar cheese (or mozz.) I pop in microwave to melt cheese. And ta-da! You have low carb smokey mountain chicken!

This is one of my favorite ways to do with Chicken.

I love this thread, cause I am not a big "red meat" eater, so I sure do consume alot of chicken on Atkins....LOL!

Thanks for letting me share!!

Wish I had read this thread earlier before eating a boring ol' piece of chicken.

I am reminded of a recipe I saw in a magazine. The combination of ingredients was so strange to me that I just had to try it. It turned out deeee-lish.

chicken
peanut butter(i think it called for 1/4 cup)
can of tomatoes with chilies

Throw it all in a slow cooker for a couple of hours and voila! The pnut butter and tomatoes thicken up into a nice tangy sauce.

Chicken Pizziola

Bang out a chicken breast so it's flat. Spread your favourite pizza sauce over it (or just good ole tomato paste). Bake this in the oven. Mix together your favourite pizza topping (cheese, oregano, ham, tomato). Spread over top of cooked chicken and put on grill until cheese is bubbly and brown.

mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

egg wash - beat a whole egg lightly with a fork... use that to dip things in to help crumbs etc to "stick"

A recipe for the crockpot:

Creamy, Cheesy, Italian Chicken Breasts

4 - 6 bonless, skinless chicken breasts (starting with frozen is fine)
1 cup bottled Italian oil/vinegar style dressing
1/2 cup sourcream
1/4 cup grated parmesan (green can stuff is fine)

Put a thin layer of dressing on the bottom of the crockpot. Add the frozen chicken breasts. Pour remaining dressing over chicken. Cook on low 8 hours. Remove chicken from the crockpot. Add sourcream and parmesan to hot dressing/juices, mix well.

The sauce can be spooned over chicken and a hot vegetable, such as broccoli, that has been steamed in the microwave for a quick lowcarb meal.

Another crockpot recipe:

Chicken/Peppers/Salsa

6 frozen skinless/bonless chicken breasts (YES - frozen!)
1 small jar of your favorite salsa
1 green bell pepper, sliced in rings
Sliced onion if desired

Layer ingredients beginning with a little salsa in the crockpot.
Cook on low for 8 hours.

This would be good served with some shredded cheese and a dollop of sourcream. It would also be a good filling for lowcarb tortillas.

WOE: ATKINS, or a slight variation thereof
Start Date: May 2003
I've recently discovered that mixing half Atkins corn muffin mix, dry, with half Carbalose flour, makes an EXCELLENT breading! Did it with catfish a week or two back, and tonight, did a cut up chicken, but you could use just the breasts if you wanted.

I brined the chicken first (1 quart water, 1/3 cup salt, pour over chicken and cover in fridge for several hours, drain well) then season it with my Cajun spice mix (garlic salt, onion powder, dried crumbled oregano, chile powder, paprika) and then dredge it well in the breading mix. Fry in about 1/2" hot oil for 12 minutes per side. Don't overcrowd the pan and keep the temp about 325*. I use expeller-pressed coconut oil or lard to fry stuff.

When done frying, place on a rack over a cookie sheet and into a 300* oven til everything is fried - this also helps cook through the breasts, you can cut into the thickest one or check with a meat thermometer to verify that it's done.

This made the tastiest, crispiest, juiciest, most tender fried chicken I've ever eaten!

WOE: My Own Type Of Low Carb
Start Date: 2/12/2005
Last night I took some baked chicken breasts and put them in a skillet and covered them with my homemade pizza sauce and heated until it was warmed up and then added some mozzarella and parmesan and covered them until the cheese melted. Sort of like a fast way to make chicken cacciatore, but it was good and a nice change of pace.

Mexican Chicken Casserole

5 boneless skinless chicken breasts, browned and chopped
1 can Cream of Chicken soup (I use Chicken Verde)
2 cups shredded cheddar
3/4 can green enchilada sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
3-4 LC tortillas cut into inch size pieces

Mix soup, cheese, enchilada sauce, sour cream in a saucepan. Heat until melted. Add chicken.

Dump the whole thing into a casserole dish and top with LC tortilla pieces.

Baek uncovered for 30 min in a 350 degree oven or until bubbly and the tortillas are crisp.

Great reheated too!

Sure! It's very simple, but I don't measure anything, I just kinda dump til it looks right.

I take a large can of Hunt's Spaghetti Mushroom Sauce and add in some Italian Seasoning, onion powder (can use dried onions), lots of oregano and some parmesan cheese, a little bit of black pepper, small bit of thyme and some ground sage.

I don't cook it or anything. Just mix it all up in a bowl until it's well blended and then put it on the pizza. It makes the best sauce.

You could add garlic powder to it if you wanted, but I'm allergic to garlic so I don't use it. If I could eat it, I would definitely put in some garlic powder to "kick" it up a notch.

Note: For the parmesan, I used the Kraft can kind and just put enough in until it thickens up the sauce a bit (or til it looks right for spreading).

This sounds like what I used to do to chicken nuggets to get my son to eat them. We called it pizza-chicken.

You almost lost me when I knew I had to pound the chicken breasts and there were more than 4 ingredients! But it sounds so good that I'll have to try it!

My Favorites

Here are my family's favorites. I'm sorry, I don't know where they came from!

Teriyaki-Ranch Chicken: saute 6 cubed chicken breast halves in 2 T oil. Place in baking dish and top with 1/2 c. low-carb teriyaki, 1/2 c. ranch dressing, 1 c. shredded cheddar, 3 chopped green onions, 3 oz. crumbled bacon. Bake 350 for 20 minutes or until done.

Sunshine Chicken: mix the following and brush on chicken: 1 pkg SF lemon jello, 4 T melted butter, 2 T yellow mustard, 1 tsp garlic salt. Place in baking dish and sprinkle with 3 T slivered almonds. Bake 350 20 minutes, baste, then cook 15 minutes more.

Dijon BBQ Chicken: marinate chicken in 1/2 c. LC BBQ sauce and 1 T Dijon mustard. Grill.

I also like the chicken marinated in Italian dressing, but I add a lemon zest to the mix.
